Childhood cancers

Since 1962, St. Jude has been committed to Danny Thomas’ motto: “No child should die in the dawn of life.” Our discoveries have transformed how the world treats childhood cancers. Today, we continue our work through innovative clinical trials and exceptional care.

Blood disorders

In 1983, a St. Jude patient with sickle cell disease was the first to be cured with a bone marrow transplant. Today, St. Jude has one of the nation’s largest sickle cell treatment programs. We also seek cures for many other childhood blood disorders.

Other diseases treated

Cures for many childhood diseases had their origins in St. Jude clinics and labs. Our doctors and scientists are among the world’s leaders in changing the outcomes for life-threatening childhood diseases.
